Jobi Action Battery Grip Review

One of the biggest issues when shooting with action cameras is the battery life. Shooting at high resolution and a high frame rate, your camera uses a lot of juice to keep going. You can fix that with extra batteries but what if you run low on battery during a shoot and you can´t stop to change the battery?

This is where Joby Action Battery Grip comes to help! It’s a fantastic, lightweight grip that can triple your battery life! You can keep your camera plugged into the external battery while shooting and get disruption free footage you want. You can even use it to charge your smartphone or any other device you have with you!

You need to use the open case that allows your GoPro to connect to a USB cable to use it as a charger, but you can always use it as a regular grip for any activity that requires a closed casing. The Grip is very lightweight and comfortable. The soft molded silicone grip is perfect for having a solid grasp and not fearing that your precious GoPro will slip out of your hands.
The bottom of the grip features a standard tripod screw so you can attach the grip to any tripod and get long shooting times and never miss a moment due to sudden battery loss.

 

Price

You can buy the Joby Action Battery Grip for around 70 USD.

It´s not the cheapest grip but considering you will get a battery bank for your GoPro or any other electronic device this is a great bang for the buck. Joby quality is next to nothing and you can be sure the product top notch quality.

We definitely recommend getting this cool little grip/power bank and you don´t have to carry around multiple batteries that always get lost.
